Latest funding brings the total raised by Cyberint to $68 million
Cyberint, a threat intelligence startup competing in the attack surface management category, has banked $40 million in financing led by StageOne Late Stage Arm.
The latest funding brings the total raised by the Tel Aviv, Israel-based company to $68 million and gives the company runway to build its technology that fuses threat intelligence with attack surface reconnaissance to help organizations manage external risk exposure.
Cyberint’s platform uses a combination of dark web data harvesting and continuous testing of an organization’s attack surface and augments that data with threat intelligence experts to deliver security-themed alerts.

Attack surface management is a product category meant to address gaps in point-in-time penetration testing and vulnerability management. It has emerged as a highly competitive category with multiple startups jostling for market share.
The category has grown in importance to solve problems with vulnerability and patch management, especially for software and other assets that are exposed to the internet.
Well-funded players in the attack surface management space include Bishop Fox, Intrigue, Randori (acquired by IBM) and CyCognito.
